Introducing The Lancaster Model to help NHS school nurses

The Lancaster Model is a system for NHS school nurses. It identifies physical
and mental health issues in both pupils and families and
provides appropriate support and response.

The NHS needed a web system to help health teams work stronger when it came to the assessment of young people, children and their families

The innovative ‘TLM’ portal – an online version of the Lancaster Model – will transform the way Buckinghamshire schools, in partnership with the school nursing service, assess and respond to children’s health needs.

We are so excited to be the ‘pioneers’ for rolling out this new approach to the way we collect and use information to support children’s development from reception right through to their teenage years.

Rosan Rowland, Head of Children and Young People’s Services, Buckinghamshire NHS Trust

It is the combination of TLM, coupled with the Compass’ approach to service delivery and partnerships that has transformed the way in which universal child health services can be delivered.

TLM has provided us with the evidence of actual need (as opposed to perceived need) which allow us to direct our resources (staff) and deliver targeted interventions by working collaboratively
